After taking the Ipswich job, Roy Keane had a pop at his former team mates, Mark Hughes and Steve Bruce. He claimed that because they hadn’t won anything, they couldn’t call themselves successful managers. Bruce has today responded to Keane’s claims.
Roy Keane has turned on Mark Hughes and Steve Bruce today, claiming they are not successful managers because they haven’t won anything. Whilst both have had disappointing spells in their career, it’s hard to argue with what Bruce has achieved with Wigan and Hughes achieved with Blackburn. They haven’t had a trophy to their name [...]
Manchester United players and fans were ecstatic. We were going to the European Cup final! Having gone down 2-0 against Juventus within the first ten minutes, United turned the game around and won 3-2. A 2-2 draw would have been enough for us to progress that night in Turin. Giggsy, who had scored our only [...]
Since the explosion of YouTube as a accessible way for everyone to get their hands on videos, we have seen the emergence of more specialist websites. GodTube, TeacherTube, PornTube, and the like. If there’s a lot of people interested in it, you’ll probably find a ‘Tube’ to go with it. So, it obviously wasn’t going [...]
Former Arsenal captain, Patrick Vieira, has today confessed that Manchester United midfielders, Roy Keane and Paul Scholes, were the best he came across during his nine years in the Premiership. When asked about his most difficult opponents, Keane and Scholes were the only players he described at length, speaking in full praise of the pair.
When Anderson first joined United, I was expected a flair player, who’d be great on the attack, but whose work rate may suffer. He was billed as the replacement for Paul Scholes, which was incredibly exciting, considering the thought of finding someone to fill Scholes’ shoes should have been a worry for all United fans [...]
“I’d waited long enough,” said Keane in his autobiography. “I fucking hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you cunt. And don’t ever stand over me sneering about fake injuries.” Keane was of course talking about Haaland, after that challenge. The FA slapped another five matches on the three he’d already [...]
I’m starting to wonder if every time Sunderland and Arsenal play, Roy Keane will be interviewed on his feelings towards the Gunners when he was a Manchester United player. There is no denying that the rivalry between these two clubs was something special, with both sides playing attractive football, both sides disliking the opposition’s players, [...]
This is what Roy Keane did to Alfe-Inge Haaland. It’s important to remember that when Keane did in his cruciate, and was in agonising pain on the deck, Haaland stood over him, shouting at him that he was cheating, telling him to get up. Keane missed a year of his career because of that injury, so [...]
Like Mark Hughes, Roy Keane seems fairly keen to distance himself from Manchester United, following his departure from the club in 2005. It was only a couple of weeks ago he was tipping Chelsea for the title, and now he’s claiming that Brian Clough was by far the best manager he ever had, in an [...]
Roy Keane certainly made a positive impression on our young defender, Jonny Evans, who has had two periods at Sunderland on loan, with him claiming that he was eager to return this season. Evans, along with Danny Simpson, joined Keano for the second half of the 2006-2007 season, helping the North-East side return to the [...]
Roy Keane was famed for his rants whilst captain of Manchester United, from his criticisms of ‘prawn sandwich munchers’ at Old Trafford, to his bust up with Mick McCarthy at the World Cup, as well as the numerous occasions where he questioned the mentality of some of our players. “The players gave it their all [...]
The Charlatans, fronted by Salford lad Tim Burgess, performed at V Festival at the weekend, receiving rave reviews. Their most recent album was given away free online for fans, ranking 2nd in the indie chart. This was a band fully involved in the Madchester scene that was knocking about in the 80s, becoming popular after [...]
It’s quite an incredible position to be in. English and European Champions, yet already being written off for the following season. What has happened? The fact we’ve ‘needed’ a new striker for the past two years, whilst we’ve been collecting the trophies, has been forgotten. Now, if we don’t sign a striker we’re screwed, apparently. [...]
